. but florida, colorado, those are republicans in those states breaking their necks for mitt romney right now and he's telling them he'd rather be in pennsylvania. bad mistake. >> if he loses florida, you know it's game over. >> he's got to go to florida. >> i understand, paul, but i mean i think if he wants to win the election, so obviously -- clashing -- >> i actually -- won't win pennsylvania. he's not going to win it. >> go ahead, john. >> that's the point. is that romney right now -- just a few weeks ago, starting in florida, you could feel it. those polls have all tightened up and here in ohio, that small lead president obama's had, this is a main street republican state but toledo area tonight where i am tonight, erin, this is home to the plant that the romney campaign has been running ads on. there's a real sense that he was in play, he had been spending a lot of time, but people here take the auto industry very personally and that ad that has been called dishonest by some folks has caused a lot of ill will to the romney campaign. i think it makes more sense to play in those states ra
't tell you whoa's right but tonight we'll lie out the choices. mitt romney looking presidential in a blue suit and teleprompter told thousands of supporters, the next four days count. >> the only things that stand between us in some of the best years we've known is lack of leadership. and that's why we have elections after off. this tuesday is the moment to look into the future and imagine what we can do, to put the past four years behind us and start building a new future. >> and barack obama looking presidential yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he also got a decent bit o
. well, by the looks of things tonight, i think we're in romney ryan country right here. i couldn't be more proud of the team we've got on the ballot here in ohio this year. mitt romney, paul ryan, josh man dell, sharon kennedy, a team ready to bring america back. [applause] a lot of you know i grew up not far from here but we moved here almost 38 years ago. raised our daughters here, moved my business here. this is our home. and i couldn't think of a prouder time for a westchester ohio than tonight. when i was running my business here, i saw how government could make it harder. i saw what government could do to stifle job creation. this is the heart land of america and in some ways this is where it all started for paul ryan as well. we got involved to help stave american dream. and four years ago people gave barack obama and chance to do just that. they believed him when he said heed turn things around. he talked about hope and change and post partisan politics and all we've gotten for the american people is they're hoping for change. so here we are four years later the american
certificate on a plane right now with the romney campaign. he called this report for us right before takeoff. >> reporter: two stops down, three more to go today as part of the 72 hour final sprint for mitt romney here in dubuque, iowa there's been a unique opportunity on the campaign plane as we prepare to board for colorado. several of the governor's top advisers are traveling with the campaign today. of course predictions about what will happen on tuesday. there's a sense they are soaking in these final hours of a campaign that many of them have been working on during the course of the last five years. the governor here again offering bipartisan themes. he has tried to draw attention to the president's comments from yesterday in ohio we said not to boo but encouraged voters to vote. saying vote is tfor revenge. romney said vote for love of your country. to give you a sense of where this campaign stands as they look forward, the former governor of utah is traveling one of the first times with the campaign today. he's in charge of what's called the romney readiness pre-transition process as
that movement of independents to romney, if that's right and a big switch from 2008, why doesn't romney have a more comfortable lead at least 2 or 3 points in these polls? >> 90% of the disagreement in the polls right now, paul, involves differing assumptions about the makeup of the electorate. if we have an electorate that looks like 2004, with equal numbers of democrats and republicans turning out, then a double digit lead for romney among independents means he wins comfortably. >> paul: right. >> on the other hand if we have an electorate that looks like 2008 with 7 percentage points more democrats than republicans in the electorate, then that's probably enough to save obama, even if he loses independents by a dozen points. >> well, where-- >> it's all in the makeup. >> paul: where do you think the recognizance electorate is going to turn out? somewhere maybe in between 2004 and 2008? and that would, i guess, make it very close. >> our last poll shows a 4.democratic margin of 35 democrat, 31 republicans. >> so that's right way, halfway between 2004 and 8. >> exactly. but frankly, paul, no
in the romney campaign. all right. context here, you understand. publicly the romney campaign is on their we're going to win tour. their pay no attention to the polls tour. the, we're even going to win pennsylvania tour. that's what they're saying publicly. that's their public message. meanwhile the associated press publishes a story that's eerily similar to "the new york times" piece from 2008 about sarah palin's post-election defeat plan. this time, of course, it's paul ryan whose post-election future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly, assuming that romney and ryan are about to lose, and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be busy as vice president. quote, publicly ryan and his closest allies maintain that momentum is behind the romney/ryan ticket but ryan's biggest boosters realize he probably can write his own ticket, win or lose, on november 6th, this ryan allies spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. if romney loses, ryan will be seen as a leading white ho
they talked about was iowa, wisconsin and ohio. right now their fire wall is burning. >> that's the romney campaign's political director, three states mentioned wisconsin, ohio, iowa. the same three states that the president has decided to visit on his last day before the election. how worried is the obama campaign about those states? >> well, i think they've been worried of all of those states because they are very close even though the polls shows obama slightly ahead by no means a safe margin. he does not have a strong lead anywhere. i think the romney campaign is really worried about ohio and that's why they suddenly turned up their visits in advertising in pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, states they don't have much of a chance to carry but they need ohio insurance because so far even if the lead is very small ohio is looking pretty good for the president. >> you know, i'm glad bill brought that up because i was going to get to that in just a few minutes. ohio, governor romney hasn't led in a major poll in that state. right now you take an average of all the polls that look at the b
final weekend with all the candidates and their surrogates out in full force right now. mitt romney just wrapped up an event end dubuque, iowa a state where most polls gives the president a narrow lead. paul ryan wind ul up a rally in pennsylvania where the romney campaign is trying to make a late pushed. the combined events of mitt romney and paul ryan will give the campaign in seven different states today. the president also had a whirlwind schedule today going to iowa, ohio, virginia, going to wisconsin as well today. vice president joe biden has two events in colorado, one outside denver, the other in pueblo. the candidates are also taking the fight to the printed page today with duelling op-eds in the "wall street journal." meanwhile back in d.c. this morning president obama at fema headquarters where he met with officials and talked about disaster relief in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> our hearts continue to go out to those families who have been affected and have lost loved ones. that's obviously heartbreaking. but i'm confident that we can continue to make progress as long as
with you, richard. the president leads by six points in ohio right now. do you think mitt romney can close that gap with just three days left? >> well, he might be able to close it by a point or two but not enough. when you've got an incumbent on the last weekend cracking 50 points it's extremely hard. and frankly down heartening for the romney folks to try and overcome that. you really have to come to it with a different perspective in the sense that the polls are all wrong, they've got the makeup of the electorate wrong. and frankly i heard the same things from the kerry campaign in 2004. you know what, when you get one or two polls in your favor and you think you've overcome every adversity before now, then you try and discount reality. ed the reality is, poll after poll after poll in ohio has put the president ahead and not by one or two points, by a handful of points which is really about the margin of error >> yes. perry, here's another way to look at this in terms of early vote versus day of. the president is winning over the early voters there in the buckeye state by about 25 point
need 40% of the latino vote, but right now, we could very well see mitt romney win with a lot less than that and we could see barack obama win with a lot less of the white vote than we have seen in the past. >> right. it certainly has shifted. maria, very quickly, if you were running the obama campaign where would you go, what would you be doing? a lot of people have said he needs to start belting it out again and getting that sore throat that he had at the end of 2008. >> i think he'll probably end up with that sore throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even
? >> i think so. i think the problem for mitt romney here is, look at ohio, right? talk about a dispute over jobs and facts and he is losing. if you go on twitter, i mean, i was doing romney ohio clips as the hash tag and the obama campaign and others were circulated today. not three, not five, but literally about 15 articles saying to mitt romney, you've got the economic plan wrong with your approach to jobs and the auto industry. and number two, equally important in a campaign, you're lying. stop lying to the people of ohio. >> dr. peterson, "the washington post" to are's point had an article entitled, mitt romney's campaign insults voters. through all the flip-flops there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. rrm seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what that revenge is about is romney's violation
're going to -- let's go to colorado right now. mitt romney is speaking there but jim acosta is there setting the stage. tell us what's going on. >> reporter: mitt romney just arrived here just a few moments ago. he has been delivering his closing argument to the crowd here and he's been doing that all day long. waking up in new hampshire, moving on to iowa and here in colorado for two stops. he has been going after the president on that new unemployment data, he has also been talking about what he would do if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going after the president on this issue of bipartisanship. mitt romney is making the case that the president has forgotten his mandate to be a uniter in this country. the president said people should be voting because it is the best revenge. mitt romney has been telling crowds all day long that people sho
there is no question what is going to happen if romney loses is the far right is going to blame tonight middle. they're going to say see, this is what happens when you don't run a true conservative. and that's going to be their narrative. and limbaugh and company previewed that a month ago. we already know what that narrative is going to be like. but if t fact that they're looking for someone to blame already is not a good sign. >> the weather, chris christie, it doesn't matter. >> the storm, but also i was going to say jumping on eric's point, chris christie will probably be in the bull's-eye. rush limbaugh i think yesterday or two days ago already unleashed a whole torrent of abuse on chris christie because as kurt said, he was rational as a republican governor of a state that had been decimated by a horrible, horrible storm, and working with the president to ensure that the people of his state got the help that they needed. and yet that's not good enough for rush limbaugh. and -- >> i think it was an anathema to rush limbaugh. >> he is a fat fool, the ultimate pot calling the kettle black. >> wel
romney to knock it off. >> cenk: all right, that's pretty good. you know when he gets excited his voice goes up a little--not true. but it isn't true. both candidates have been crisscrossing the country especially president obama. i get the sense that he might go to ohio a couple of times. tell me about it. >> but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force hub through election day. for his part mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but also hoping to win over wisconsin. he's looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning sunday and visiting new hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to four-point--there with two two- two- to four-
blown out of the water by mitt romney. i don't see this as being a 300 plus electoral right for mitt romney. >> greta: he hangs his hat largely on the independents. that is why he says this is going to break for romneyly think the independents will break for romney. i doubt it will be that much. i agree with rick it will be tighter than that. i don't see romney winning, pennsylvania. i think he has got to win, ohio. the problem for romney is numbers among hispanics very poor. they were aiming for 38% of hispanics and they are in the low 20s now. can he win in the midwest where there aren't a lot of hispanics? yes. he has to win, ohio, and virginia and he has got to win florida. >> i think we are heading into a 2004 nail biter. look at the polls in ohio, today barack obama is almost exactly where george w. bush was in the polls in ohio 8 years ago. look at the job approval ratings, barack obama's job approval rating is almost exactly where george w. bush's approval rating is. the only thing looking better for romney at this point is obama is worse off in the polls. george w. bush had
storm for mitt romney, it seems to me. am i wrong about that? >> no, i think you're right. i put it this way. i wrote this earlier this week. nine days ago on that wednesday a week and two days ago, mitt romney's people were calling reporters and saying, we have this in the bag. it was two days after the third debate incidentally. a debate that most people judged the president won although not in the fashion that romney won the first debate. even though the president won that debate, it did not stop the romney people from saying we feel really good. we think we have this. we think we're on the verge of 305 electoral votes so on and so forth. that was nine days ago. two days ago--two days ago his campaign had a conference call with political reporters to persuade them that the race wasn't over. they were still in it, they had a shot, and they felt pretty good about it. in seven days they went from this race is over to wait, no the rate isn't over. that's what sandy did. >> eliot: the reason for that was because sandy was the perfect metaphor you need a government to come in and do
romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight real
jumps in. >> california has signed on. that's right. if mitt romney wins the popular vote and barack obama wins the electoral college vote then i think the electoral college will blow up. it will explode. republicans won't stand for that that. >> eliot: jack welch will say its conspiracy. there are other flaws in the voting system. there rampant with the intellectual problems that we have to deal with. >> the point of origin is the constitution which does not confirm the affirmative right to vote. early on the framers passed it over to the states. everything became localized which is why we have 13,000 different voting districts with its own ballot design. ballot designed by count supervisors, while i respect them they're not designers. that's why you get the butterfly ballot. >> eliot: you're being kind to them. you're right by and large they're hard working good folks. sometimes the design errors are simply poor judgment or a mistake. but there are efforts by many people to prevent people to vote. >> absolutely. one of the things that has been so localized ie, chaotic there is too
or judgment with mitt romney because his position changes so frequently. but i think that's the right question. and part of the answer to that is how desperate this toledo jeep ad looked when it's clear the auto rescue has worked here. everybody believes it worked. people forget it was a hard political call three years ago, wasn't a hard call in terms of substance, but a hard political call for congress and the president, but we did the right thing. it was several things. it was bipartisanship back then with senator voinovich and president bush and president obama. it was a partnership between the federal government and local communities and businesses, and we always kept a focus on how do you get manufacturing jobs back and focus on the middle class? that's why it's been a success. that's why it's working politically, and that's, frankly, why governor romney is so desperate in ohio right now. >> one thing i have learned is my jeep came from toledo. i never knew where it came from. now i have to thank the people of toledo tonight for making my jeep. i love it. i haven't had a single problem wi
't even envision a romney presidency, but you're absolutely right. the supreme court is critical. everything that, you know, our constitution protects for us is at stake. >> let me bring in karen here. karen, i know that part of what president obama has done so beautifully is to make this argument that senator boxer is making there, the reproductive rights are economic rights, they are pocket book issues. >> that's absolutely right. i serve on the board of pro choice america. one of the things i know, the senator knows this, we found out about a year ago and gallup found it as women, ell, in battleground states, high percent sage of women, access to abortion care is higher than the economy, higher than jobs because women understand, again, that if you don't have access to birth control, if you don't have access to abortion care, those are sort of gate issues to other things. that means -- they pacts your ability to work outside the home, to care for your family. and the president has -- >> one of the off-sided statistics is that women who seek abortions typically, or mostly actua
of the cylinders in virginia right now. >> sean: last quick question, does romney ryan take wisconsin? >> i think they have a good shot at doing so. the numbers are looking good. president obama is spending a lot of time there which shows he is deeply worried about it. wouldn't be spending time if he were getting away with a state easily. one other thing, too, the president is going to make a stop in superior wisconsin in the northwestern part of the state. i'm convinced he thinks minnesota is at play. that is a place you go in order to affect duluth, minnesota. i think it is a very smart play on the president's part. not only a part of wisconsin that is important but also saying i need to get there because i may be seeing minnesota slip away from me as well. >> sean: i'm ready for game day. let's get it on. thanks for being with us. >> let's do it. >> sean: we now know that while four americans were dying and our consulate was under fire our administration did not convene its terrorism task force whic exists solely for a crisis like what happened in >> sean: and another day, another twist in the
. it is terrible for romney. maybe the polls are wrong, but if you're looking at the polls right now, obama has got it. >> did romney have momentum or was that just republican spin? >> he did have momentum after the first debate -- >> we have had a three since then -- >> what obama was never able to recapture the lead. >> i cannot say with certainty that there was momentum, no momentum. i cannot tell. you look at the polls hour after hour and you get a sense that this thing is very tight, even when you go to some of the battle ground states. >> yes, the first debate made an enormous difference in the campaign. it allowed mitt romney to reintroduce himself with no opposition on the part of the president as the moderate massachusetts reasonable mitt. gone was the saber-rattling mitt, keep out the foreigners mitt, round up the suspects mitt and send them to practice -- [laughter] he became reasonable, intelligent, poised, forget the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. frank bruni of "the new york times" made a telling point -- the first debate was important because it may president obama in th
right. that has imploded because you don't see governor romney using abortion or gay marriage decisively. >> they became moderate, the religious right haven't taken over governor romney. >> are the media guilty aiding in the cover-up in the attacks in benghazi. >> the major news blackout over the details surrounding the deadly terror attacks roll on. and some navy seals talk about the benghazi disaster but their views got censored. who did that and why? all next on news watch. where others fail, droid powers through. introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. >>> live from america's news headquarters. president obama and governor romney making closing arguments. romney visiting three battled ground states, new hampshire, colorado and ohio. ohio west virginia and virginia. voters are heading to the polls in the swing state of florida. today is the last day for early voting and some people waited in lines up to four hour's long. >> recovery efforts underway in the wake of hurricane sandy. some 2.7 million people across 15 states and d.c. remain bough
